Kodiak Island Lodge:
Fishing, Deer Hunting, and Duck Hunting


Our partners on Kodiak Island offer a truly amazing saltwater fishing experience.  At the Lodge they target salmon, giant pacific halibut, lingcod, and several species of rockfish. Most days they will see a mixed bag of several different saltwater fish species. They provide all the top-of-the-line equipment, tackle, and bait. At the end of each day, the catch will be carefully processed, packaged, and frozen for you.  Halibut are huge fish and a blast to catch on rod and reel! They are also well known for their delicious white flaky meat and are arguably the world's premium-tasting fish. At the Lodge they don’t have to travel very far to get to the fishing grounds. Some of our most productive spots are within 30 minutes of the lodge. Bottom fishing for Halibut, rockfish, and Lingcod in our area is done by jigging with rod and reel, typically in 80-200 feet of water.  The average Halibut is 20-30lbs but it’s not uncommon to get into weights approaching or exceeding 100lbs. Salmon fishing is primarily done in the ocean by trolling with downriggers or drifting and mooching. The monster reel burning Kings and high-flying aerobatic Silvers are plentiful in their little slice of heaven. King Salmon can be caught year-round but peak fishing is late May thru early July. Silvers begin to show up mid-July in large numbers schooled up around the baitfish. In late August they begin to enter the rivers and we shift gears to target them from the riverbanks for some exciting action.

Deer Hunting

Sitka Black-tailed Deer hunts are all inclusive lodge-based, fully guided, spot and stalk hunting. Every day you will be transported out at first light and picked up before dark. Each day you are provided with a hot breakfast before we depart, pack lunch to eat on the mountainside, and then dinner once you return to the lodge.

The Kodiak deer season opens on August 1. This early deer opener allows for hunting to overlap the peak fishing season making for some amazing combo adventures.  During August and September, the bucks are in bachelor groups typically at higher elevations in the alpine. The thick, green, and lush vegetation can make it an arduous hike to get up to the top after them but once in the high alpine it can be a very successful time to hunt them. As you move into November the rut and colder weather begin to reveal more deer and it can be easier to get around. In November and December, greater snow accumulations up high begin to force more deer down to the heavy timbered and sheltered lowlands. During years with significant snowfall large numbers of deer are often found right along the beaches. Currently, hunters are allowed up to 3 deer. Bucks only before October 1st and then any deer after that. Though the Sitka Blacktail Deer have smaller antlers than most other deer species, they are arguably the most beautiful and striking of the deer species. These stocky deer have a dark, black-capped forehead with a double white throat patch and rich dark brown antlers.

Deer begin to shed their antlers after the 1st week of December, and they shift their focus primarily to Sea Ducks.

Duck Hunting

Kodiak Island is one of the top-rated duck hunting destinations in the world and home to an abundance of one of the most sought after and prized sea ducks, the Harlequin.   The beautiful Harlequin along with many other trophy sea duck species such as Barrows Goldeneye, Old Squaw, and all 3 species of scoter spend the winter in Kodiak’s relativity mild winters. Duck hunters are strategically placed on rocky points or prominent beaches behind a set of decoys. This setup offers a combination of pass shooting and decoying birds as they move between their feeding grounds. The guide boat will be placed offshore and will move in to retrieve the downed birds. Expect to move several times a day based on weather and tides.
